I was truly sorry to hear of your grandmother's passing, Talena. I know she was a second mother to you, and while she is no longer with you, she will continue to live on in the many memories you hold so dear. Allow yourself (and your mother) to have peace in knowing that you made her last days better. She left this world knowing she was deeply loved and cared for. You and your mom played a major part in that. I will continue to pray for you and your family. Love to you during this heartbreaking time. And always.

Resurrection, the rising up from death. The scriptures assures us at John 5:28 that there will be a time when we will be reunited with our loved ones. Until that time comes take comfort that our Heavenly Father, Jehovah will help you find comfort.

I want to offer my condolences to the family and friends of Mildred. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Even Jesus gave way to tears when Lazarus died(John 11:35).Take comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father knows your pain. He calls death an Enemy and promised to remove it forever__ 1Corinthians 15:26 “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” He also promised to awaken our love ones from asleep in death. Notice how this is beautifully expressed at Isaiah 26:19 “ Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." Let these promises from our loving Father keep comforting all of you.

Sallie and Jimmy: It has been a long time since we were next door neighbors, but we have nothing but fond memories of you and your mother. She was a genuinely pleasant person, who always seemed on top of everything. Such people are always missed, as I'm sure Mildred will be.

We are so sorry to hear of Millie's passing. She leaves quite a legacy! She was so sweet and loving to all she met, and she was such an encourager. She will be greatly missed. There is such comfort to know she is with her Maker, and she is whole again. May God provide the strength and comfort you all need in these sad days, and may He give you a peace that passes all understanding. Much love from the Hasty family. вќ¤пёЏ

I was so sorry to hear of Millie's passing. When I was fortunate enough to be around her she was full of life, happiness, energy, and selflessness. Talena and I would spend weekends with Talena's family when we were in college. My fondest memories were of Millie cooking us a big southern breakfast and we loved every minute of it. Not just the breakfast but all our great times with Millie. She will be dearly missed.
